21 Feb – Jackie Chan was full of praises for his "CZ12" co-star Kwon Sang-woo while visiting Seoul to promote the movie.
As reported on Groove Asia website, speaking at the promotional event for "CZ12" on 19 February, the actor talked about his experience working with the "King of Ambition" actor.
The 59-year-old, who is used to performing his own stunts in movies, expressed, "I was impressed by Kwon's passion and determination. Like myself, he also avoided using a stuntman for many of his stunts despite injuring his ankle along the way."
The actor also expressed his surprise at how quickly Kwon mastered his lines in both Chinese and English, even though Chan suggested he act in Korean due to his lack of experience with foreign languages.
His admiration for the Korean star was so great, that Jackie joked he would like to be Kwon's manager, saying, "When he goes to China for an ad or film shoot, I would tell him how this company and that company is like, as if I was his manager."
